LOST-related Events at San Diego Comic-Con 2010

Daniel Dae Kim will be starring in the reimagined version of Hawaii Five-0

Comic-Con 2010 is this week. While there won’t be the kind of LOST panel that we’ve seen in the past, there will be plenty of events featuring LOST actors, writers, and fans.

Here’s the schedule. Twitter will be a good bet for live coverage.

Thursday, July 22, 2010

4:30-5:30 LOST’s composing genius Michael Giacchino will be a member of the panel in Behind the Music with CW3PR: Composing for Sci-Fi, Horror, and Fantasy Film & TV.

Friday, July 23, 2010

10:15-11:15 Daniel Dae Kim (Jin) will be on the panel Aloha, Earth! discussing the remake of Hawaii Five-0. Kim was the first actor cast for the show (he will play Detective Chin Ho Kelly), which also stars Alex O’Loughlin (Moonlight), Grace Park (Battlestar Galactica), and Jean Smart (Martha Logan on 24). The show will start in the fall on CBS.

7:30-8:30 30 Days of Night: Dark Days This panel is for a movie based on a graphic novel, starring Kiele Sanchez, who played the ill-fated Nikki Fernandez (as in, Nikki and Paulo) in LOST’s most hated sub-plot. Wishing her better luck in her new role.

Saturday, July 24, 2010

1:00-2:00 The Write Stuff: Creating Genre Television. Among the 11 writers on the panel are two from LOST — Javier Grillo-Marxuach and Jesse Alexander. This looks like a very interesting event. As does the next one:

1:00-2:00 The Lost Podcast with Jay and Jack. Here’s the official description: “Father and son team Jay and Jack Glatfelter have one of the oldest and biggest podcasts dedicated to ABC’S Lost. Discuss the stirring series finale, and learn about the huge dedicated online community for TV’s most mind-twisting drama. Join Jay and Jack for this special interview and Q&A session!”

2:30-3:15 V Screening and Q&A with, of course, Elizabeth Mitchell (Juliet). V will be coming back in the middle of the fall season.

4:15-5:00 The Vampire Diaries Screening and Q&A with Ian Somerhalder (Boone). Vampire Diaries will be back in the fall.

This one may be the most LOST-centric event of all:

6:00-7:00 Lost But Not Forgotten Official description: “Lost Encyclopedia authors Tara Bennett and Paul Terry, along with other special Lost guests, discuss this seminal show’s legacy, their thoughts on the finale, and the creation of the forthcoming Lost Encyclopedia.”

Sunday, July 25, 2010

11:15-12:15 Cartoon Network: Tower Prep with Firebreather Sneak Paul Dini, the creator of this new live-action mystery show, was a writer and story editor on LOST.

Editing to add: I just noticed that JOpinionated has a list that includes these events I missed: Sterling Beaumon (Young Ben) and Andrea Gabriel (Nadia) signing autographs; a Friday night casual get-together with Jay & Jack; executive producers/writers Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis on a panel on Thursday 11:15 to 12:45; Michelle Rodriguez (Ana Lucia) on a panel Thursday 1 to 2; J.J. Abrams on a panel Thursday 3:30 to 4:30; Elizabeth Mitchell on two more panels in addition to the V panel listed above (Friday 4-5 and 6:30-7:30); and Lance Reddick, who played my favorite non-starring character (Matthew Abaddon), in a Fringe panel on Saturday 3:15 to 4:15 .

LOST link round-up # 1

Round 'em up, ancient Egyptian cowboy!

It’s hard to believe, but we’re heading into the final week of LOST. So exciting and so sad.

The approaching end of LOST has unleashed a torrent of creativity around the internet. Such an excess of riches, and too much to describe everything in individual posts. I’m just going to start posting lists of links to interesting things, as I come across them:

Composer Michael Giacchino was honored in UCLA last night, May 13. The LOST folks at the event taped short tributes to him. They also said a few words about how they felt about the show ending.

Some of these videos have just been posted, so you can be among the first to watch. The videos feature Jorge Garcia (Hurley, still alive despite his red shirt), Michael Emerson (be still my heart) (Ben, who found redemption at last), Daniel Dae Kim (Jin, and fie on the producers for killing him off), L. Scott Caldwell (Rose, who is not Eve after all), Damon and Carlton (who I suppose can still be my boyfriends even though they killed off Sun & Jin right after they got back together), Nestor Carbonell (Richard Alpert, who can ride a horse and is not a vampire), Harold Perrineau (Michaaaaaaaael, last spotted whispering in the jungle), and Sonya Walger (Penny: will she return with her boat for the finale?)

There is also a long profile of Michael Giacchino in the current (May 17) print issue of The New Yorker (only an abstract is available online to non-subscribers).

What if LOST ended like The Sopranos? Or like Saturday Night Live? has imagined the last 10 seconds of LOST, if it were to end like eleven other television shows.

It turns out that Previously on Lost is not the only recap band. There’s another (called, appropriately, The Others), and the ultra-talented Sophie made a video to go along with their song about the Jack-centric episode, The Lighthouse.

More to come.

Congratulations, Michael Giacchino

Congratulations to Michael Giacchino, LOST’s composer, for winning the 2010 Oscar for Best Original Score for the movie Up.

Memorable quote from his acceptance speech:

I know there are kids out there that don’t have that support system, so if you’re out there and you’re listening, listen to me — if you want to be creative, get out there and do it. It’s not a waste of time. Do it. OK?

Here’s a clip of the music from Up:
